I don't know about you, but I don't think I could properly evaluate it if I had to avoid browsing to any website where I might need to enter a password, or unzip password-protected zip files, or, well, do anything that would involve me entering a password.

Why would you use a pre-alpha release of ANY os on your main computer? Or you can download the ISO, enter the key (it's all over the net), and set up an entirely fake user account. It's not like Microsoft has the same "real names" policy as facebook.

Somehow I suspect that pirating something that's being exposed for how much it phones home might not be the smartest idea in the world.

As long as Comcast and Time Warner are competing with each other, Netflix can say "Well Comcast only charged us this much, can you lower your price?" to Time Warner.

And Time Warner will say "How nice that Comcast is giving you a break. But if you want access to our customers -- which you cannot get from Comcast -- then this is the price."

Well, maybe one day unicef will get into the extortion business. Until then, we're the people to see. Do you want access to our customers or not?

I can't support this merger given how horrible my current experience is with TWC. They've been to my house 6 times over 8 weeks and still no service. I've missed neatly 3 full days of work. It's not like I have another option either. One customer service rep canceled my order accidentally and had to start a new order.

Make sure you file a complaint with the FCC. You must know that the FCC isn't reading slashdot comments. Here: http://www.fcc.gov/complaints

Old iPods let you do this. I had one that did, I don't miss it at all.

For those who think "oh I wish i had a device i can just browse as a hard drive"... well, how do you make playlist with a filesystem? I have 2 thousand files on my iPod, and I'm not even trying hard. Because some are based on last time i played them, dozens of files come and go based on metadata changes every time I sync. You want me to manage that myself? How can I have a file in two playlists, do I have to have two copies on disk? There's no real good way on filesystem only. You have to have some managing software. And at that point, you need to sync between Filesystem image and Managing software image. At that point, I'm willing to drop the Filesystem access for a decent player. I had the second gen iPod.

There's that whole "subdirectory" concept. I know, it's new and obscure so you probably didn't hear about it yet.
Also, every filesystem player that I owned support .m3u playlists. Of course all that was before cell phones rendered dedicated music players totally obsolete. Those phones also support .m3u. At least Android does. I've no idea if Apple stuff does, they're not real big on using "open" anything.

Visit the woman's site. Check her publication history. She's a shill. Hint: "polarbearscience" isn't hard to type into a Wordpress template.

That site is one of the most depressing and dishonest things I've seen in a while. She should be ashamed of herself.

Her opinion on walrus ecology is as valid as yours and mine. Except hers is paid for by a "think tank" that does everything it can to undermine science if it gets in the way of corporate profits.

We are so fucked.

She'll probably be elected to congress soon as it sounds like her credentials are up to snuff.

Mass haulouts of Pacific walrus and stampede deaths are not new, not due to low ice cover http://polarbearscience.com/20...

Large haulouts of walruses -- such as the one making news at Point Lay, Alaska on the Chukchi Sea (and which happened before back in 2009) -- are not a new phenomenon for this region over the last 45 years and thus cannot be due to low sea ice levels. Nor are deaths by stampede within these herds (composed primarily of females and their young) unusual, as a brief search of the literature reveals.

Includes references, links and copies of contemporary reports.

Whoopsie, wwf made a poopsie.

The factual inaccuracy of the claim is insignificant in light of the millions in donations they'll likely garner as a result.

Read the article. This software was "expressly designed for use by stalkers and domestic abusers". Apple and Microsoft have not expressly designed anything for those purposes.

Re read the article. You are quoting the US DOJ statement, not what the company or persons in question have said. If you go to the cached version of the stealthgenie website (since the real one is gone) that is not the case. They were marketing it to employers and parents of teens.

Regardless of your opinion on that matter, the statement you quoted appears to be a falsification.

No one is saying that. We are saying that there is commericial software that is basicly an invitation for abuse, that for a couple bucks lets anyone play NSA, law enforcement at their most depraved and stalk, harrass and intimidate people by hi-jacking their devices. somehow its about feminism. are you fucking daft?

Next we should go after Apple and Microsoft. It's well established that 98.28% of all electronic stalkers, harassers, and domestic abusers used either Windows or osx to do it.

What the fuck is wrong with the world that the seller of a tool can be arrested because some customer chooses to use it for nefarious purposes. I sure hope people don't start using cars to commit crimes because I like having a car. Oh wait...

It means tracking translation. The Gear VR tracks your head's rotation but not translation which triggers a reflex in your brain that causes nausea.

Basically the brain knows that your head moved a certain way and what your eyes see doesn't match that. In turn, your brain decides that the only explanation is that you've been poisoned and makes you want to hurl as a defense mechanism.

Maybe not such a bad thing. A lot of gamers drink Monster, which is similar to poison - at least in flavor.

He means, we all aspire to live as if we're Putin, who aspires to live like he was Chuck Norris.

If we were directly exposed to trying to live like Chuck Norris we would die from infinitely trying to roundhouse kick ourselves in the head for trying to live the Chuck Norris. Consequently we "does not live the guy" because Putin saves us from not being Chuck Norris as he is the only man manly enough to survive his own roundhouse kick to the head.

That brings about an interesting problem. What happens if chuck norris tries to roundhouse kick himself in the face? On the one hand, chuck norris does not miss. On the other hand, chuck norris does not let anyone kick him in the face. I think it may create a big bang.
